We love our students! They have embraced Colossians 2:6-7 "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness." This moment in life can be both amazing and hard, and our community of students have shown love for each other and for spreading the love of Jesus to our community and beyond.
Westside Youth Ministry guides teens
to receive Christ Jesus as Lord
to become rooted in Christ
to grow in the faith
and to overflow the world with God's love.
6:45-8:15 -- Midweek gathering for students is probably the one event that best defines our student ministry. Teens participate in worship, interact and receive messages from special speakers and the Youth Pastor, and have lots of fun!
9:30-10:40 -- Morning worship services are composed of singing contemporary worship music, fellowship and message.
10:50-12 pm -- Sunday school classes for teens are divided by 7/8th grade boys and girls each having their own classes and 9-12th grade offering multiple classes. Each Sunday school class is focusing on a scope and sequence that integrated God's word throughout the lesson.
Vision (Why do we do it?): All teens at Westside have a servant's heart like Jesus Christ (1John 13:1-7)
Purpose (How do we do it?): Provide teens opportunities to serve like Jesus in our church and community modeling it alongside of others in the youth ministry and our church.
Our teen committees provide teens an opportunity to serve and lead in youth ministry. They provide space for teens to discover and grow their spiritual gifts, talents and abilities that God has given them.
The College Ministry is an environment to grow in your relationship with God and with others through weekly gatherings, friendships and events throughout the year. We believe that community is essential to spiritual growth and vitality.
Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money to benefit teens from Westside Church of the Nazarene Inc, that are going to NYC 2019. We are going to be attending the Nazarene Youth Conference (NYC) in Phoenix, Arizona during the month of July in 2019.
This is a HUGE Christian event which gathers over ten thousand high school students from across the United States and Canada and puts us together in a convention center for a week. The week will be filled with hearing from some of the top youth speakers from around the world, attending spiritual growth workshops, and serving the Phoenix community by feeding the homeless, cleaning up the city, working with sick children, and other charitable opportunities. This event is only offered once every four years to high school students only, so it truly will be a “once in a lifetime” event.
